Hirono also sidestepped Bash's question on whether Michael Avenatti, who represents porn star Stormy Daniels, hurt the Democrats' arguments against Kavanaugh's confirmation by representing a third woman to make allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

Swetnick also alleged that at some parties, boys lined up by a bedroom to "gang-rape" incapacitated girls and claimed those in the lineup included Kavanaugh and Judge.

Collins said she sought however to empathize with Kavanaugh considering the allegations brought against him by Ford and two other women.

"I'm going to help raise $3 million to match that because that criticism is absolutely abominable that they would say that about her for everything that she has stood for in her lifetime related to feminist issues", Grassley told Martha MacCallum on "The Story".

"Venom" Defies Bad Reviews And Breaks October Box Office Record Anyway
Sony Pictures' Venom trounced box office projections with a $205.2 million opening weekend globally, according to Deadline . Considering it was directly competing with A Star Is Born , which also took more than $40m, that's pretty damn impressive.

"If you fail to stand up for the people of ME and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020", the campaign description reads. The would-be candidates include Susan Rice, who had been one of President Barack Obama's closest aides. For her part, Collins bristled at the campaign and said it amounted to bribery. "Collins VOTES NO on Kanvanaugh OR we fund her future opponent", which was started by the Maine People's Alliance, Mainers for Accountable Leadership and activist Ady Barkan. "She said he did, but she had never seen him that way".

Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, also appearing on the CNN news show, described Collins' attitude as "insulting" to Ford and other sex assault victims.

Diane Russell, a Democratic activist, said Collins voted to "betray ME women and ME survivors" by ignoring their stories. Well, to say that she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, what is that?

In voting with her party, Collins exploded the myth that there is a viable moderate wing of the GOP at the national level. "He's put forth his nominee, he should have left it up to us to assess the allegations, with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "I think that if our politics has come to the point where people are trying to buy votes and buy positions, then we are in a very sad place", Collins told CBS News' "60 Minutes". @SenatorCollins has made it clear that she can no longer call herself a women's rights champion. "ME and America deserve better". "I worked to preserve funding for Planned Parenthood over and over again, and I'm going to continue to do so".
